Today Mags and I are going on a long trip to Michigan City, which is about 2 hours from here, and spending the day at the beach with people from our church. Gwen was going to go with us, then the opportunity came up for her to go to the zoo with some friends, so she’s going to Ft. Wayne, instead. So, I will have a bit of time on my hands, as well as a distracted brain.
Now, we’re supposed to pack a lunch, but I still haven’t gotten to that. No, in fact the question that kept me awake last night was, “What books should I bring?”
Books. as in plural. for a day trip. LOL.
So, after much deliberation, here’s what I think I’ve settled on:
The Inconvenient Adventures of Uncle Chestnut by Paul Nowak ~ This is an ARC-alanche pile resident, and about 100 pages, so I should be able to get through it today.
Neil Armstrong Is My Uncle by Nan Marino ~ I’ve been dying to get to this book but haven’t been able to because I was being “responsible” and reading books for blog tours. Yay for beach days! (also and ARC-alanche resident)
Viva Cisco by Patrick Shannon ~ This one is another ARC-alanche resident, and it’s a book of short stories about crazy talking animals living together in a city of their own the jungle. Sounds fun!
Home Repair by Liz Rosenberg ~ another ARC-alanche book, I’m on page 60 and getting ready to meet Jonah.
Fruits Basket, volume 3 by Natsuki Takaya ~ Yes, Maggie’s MAKING ME TAKE IT! lol…
Books that almost made it in my bag were The Rapture by Liz Jensen (thought it’d make me look good with church people.. :-D ) and Homer’s Odyssey by Gwen Cooper (I really, REALLY want to read it!)
I’ll blog if I was overly optimistic when I get home, but now I must hurry and make my lunch!
